Custom Residential - Suburban & Vacation Homes

How does a house or an apartment become your home? Foster Dale Architects (FDA) listens and works collaboratively with you to design an elegant home with inspiring space that reflects your personality and your lifestyle. FDA can help you to design a new home or to renovate or expand your existing home.

When appropriate, we incorporate sustainable design strategies and innovative material selections. We provide design options and guide clients through the entire process. In a new home or a renovation, we believe that a home should look to the future while respecting the past.
